175Re: FW: Walk along the Mystic River
- Mar 1, 2004That's probably only a minor hitch. The MBTA owns that section of
dirt path, and keeps it open. You'd create no trouble by just walking
it. Formal permission would come from Mark Boyle at MBTA real estate,
but I don't think that asking is justified.
When you're at Draw 7 park, you might also stare longingly along the
Mystic River, toward Charlestown. Through the chain link fence you'll
see an MBTA rail yard and bus yard that extend right to the river
banks. You may see buses parked just a few feet from the river.
While here, imagine what it might have been if the MBTA rail yard had
been built after Chapter 91 regulations were implemented (Chapter 91
requires public access as part of most waterfront development).
Instead, you'll turn around and walk the long way to Sullivan Square
